Nope, OBD II had new grills in '96. Your grilles indicate a post '96. Pre-'96 are narrower.

the difference is in the newer cars the "fins" are larger and the crome border is fatter than in the older one. plus in the newer one the crome and the overall shape is different. they get wider towards the top. please correct me if i am wrong but that is what i see.
